Roger defeated in final

27.10.2013 | Tennis

Roger showed great tennis in today's final at the Swiss Indoors but was defeated by Juan Martin Del Potro 6-7(3), 6-2, 4-6. 

Roger fought hard and both players displayed a terrific match. Our champ admitted a break in game number eight but came right back with a re-break to love. Unfortunately Del Potro proved the better player in the tie-breaker, taking the opening set. Roger jumped to a 2-0 lead in the second set and scored another break at the end of the set, wrapping it up neatly. The start into the decider was very unlucky for Roger. He was serving for the game at 40-15 but committed a total of three double-faults to lose the advantage and the game. Not able to score a break himself, Roger had to admit defeat after 2 hours 20 minutes. 

Roger will play the tournament in Paris next week. He needs to win one single match there in order to qualify for the World Tour Finals.

Roger, you may not have won, but you are going the right way op. Telling and showing all that you are not done, not ready to retire and that you cannot be underestimated. Beating players 10 years younger than yourself and making sure that the winner of Basel had to fight till the last point for his win...

You may not have won, but I am so proud of you. After the year you had, it takes time to come back and you are on your way up.

I love you Roger, for now, forever and for eternity.

Hey Roger, you have NOTHING to be ashamed about. You played great. Anyone who looks at the numbers will see that. You lost the first set in a TB, came the second set roaring back. Unfortunately the first game in the third cost you the title, but really you played yesterday almost three hours and had less time to recover than Delpo.
Please be proud of yourself and don't listen to the haters. After ALL you went through in 2013, to play a match like this !!! Delpo had to EARN his title, no gift

Ok Roger.
You didn't win, bit disappointing for you.
But it sounds like (I didn't see this match) that you put in a good fight and have got some of your form back, so that is a Plus from this tournament. You played some great tennis and had some tough matches, which will be good going into the Tour Finals.
I have no doubt you will be there.
All the best in Paris.
Lets go Roger. Your the best
